Storm System Invest 95L Brings MORE RAIN to Ambergris Caye

Our little neck of the woods has been a bit of a hot spot for rain and storm systems these past few weeks.  Nothing close to Tropical Storm status while it passes by us (though the last system turned into deadly Hurricane Ingrid and hit the east coast of Mexico just a few days ago killing as many as 34 people) but we are getting lots of grey skies and plenty of rain.

Here is the world wide picture of Tropical storms from Wunderground.com.

And 95L sitting EXACTLY RIGHT ON TOP OF US.  I present you the always scientific “Me on My Couch” indicator.

95L Today

 

Invest 95L is not a tropical depression yet and will move from us before that is even possible but the potential storm Jerry…wait…JERRY?  Shouldn’t storm names have some sort of gravitas to them?  No offense to anyone named Jerry but I don’t know about nicknames storm guys.

A quick aside…Here are the 2013 names:

Andrea
Barry
Chantal
Dorian
Erin
Fernand
Gabrielle
Humberto
Ingrid
Jerry
Karen
Lorenzo
Melissa
Nestor
Olga
Pablo
Rebekah
Sebastien
Tanya
Van
Wendy

HUMBERTO – now that’s a proper name.

Anyway…it looks like plenty of rain and wind today.

Here is a picture of current conditions at Royal Palms.

No wind to speak of, the sea is up about 2 feet with waves small and rolling but making their way far up the beach and just solid rain.

And for pictures of sunshine,  check my last post of lots of sunny, sunny happy pictures…I promise!  Belize’s usual state.,
